LEGENDARY women’s footballer Julie Fleeting added yet another honour to the glittering array secured throughout her career on Sunday night.

She was inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame, at this year’s annual dinner at Scotland’s National Stadium, Hampden Park.

It all began for Julie, whose married name is Stewart, at Ayr United where she served as club captain.

An exceptional footballer and ambassador for the women’s game in Scotland, she was one of five inductees to be honoured at this year’s glittering awards event, which was attended by former Celtic skipper Roy Aitken.

Kilwinning woman Julie is Scotland’s most prolific goalscorer with a staggering 116 international goals in 121 matches. She captained the national team Scotland for eight years.

After leaving Ayr, Julie joined San Diego Spirit, becoming the first Scot to play in the professional Women’s United Soccer Association League in America.

Julie was awarded the MBE in 2008 for services to women’s football.

Following nine seasons at Arsenal Julie returned to Scotland for spells at Kilwinning Ladies, Celtic Ladies and Glasgow City with whom she lifted the Scottish Women’s Cup.

Football legend Julie attended the dinner with husband Colin, sister Jemma and her husband, Chris Strain. Her dad Jim, the former Killie boss, was out of the country.

She said: "I am absolutely over the moon with this honour and it was presented to me by footballer Rose Reilly from Stewarton, who was capped for Italy. It was great to see the Scotland boss Alex McLeish and meet the other inductees to the Hall of Fame, including Roy Aitken.

“Women’s football in Scotland is improving year by year as demonstrated by the national team reaching the World Cup finals next year.

“Hopefully the increased profile of the women’s game will inspire more women and girls to pursue the game that we all love.”
